For our first Teach it! Tuesday I brought out the big guns… head, shoulders, knees and toes! I started singing this song to Ryley in the car this weekend and she seemed to really like the rhythm. So when brother bear (Avery) was taking a nap I sang the song with the motions. She was fascinated. She watched me do it a few times and started copying the head part but not the rest of the movements. So we took it to the floor.
We sat facing each other and I sang and moved her hands to the right spots a few times. She loved the eyes, ears, mouth and nose part but still wasn’t too sure about the shoulders, knees and toes. But we practiced a few more times and then decided it was more fun to roll on the floor with momma singing to her. I’m pretty confident that she now knows where her head is and we will work on the rest later.
Our little man has the crud so we didn’t get to learn anything new today. He got a lot of cuddles and even more naps. Plus, he learns something new and exciting everyday.. hes growing so fast! He’s almost grabbing his little toes now and coos more then any baby I’ve met. Maybe next Tuesday we’ll work on head, shoulders, knees and toes with him and sissy.. haha!
What did your little one learn today?
